Kellogg's has killed Product 19!

When you hear the name Product 19, you’ll either flash on an experimental invention from some corporate R&D department, or, if you’re one of its fans, you might think of the health cereal, rare in the aisles of American supermarkets yet loved all the same.

But earlier this month, Kellogg’s announced that it had officially discontinued the cereal. While most people these days seemed to barely know of its existence, Product 19 died—a slow, oaty, fade to black, leaving devoted fans desperate.

"PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't discontinue this cereal," one fan wrote on Kellogg's community boards a few months ago. "I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cereal!"

Never heard of it. What made it unique?

They killed a cereal I liked in the 1990s. I don't remember its name. It came in a white box with blue lettering. It was a mix of different grains, I think mostly corn. And it had almonds and raisins. It was addictive, so I stopped eating it. So they stopped making it.

Do they still make the corn flakes with dried banana bits? They made it in the early '60s , then brought it back recently.

Product 19 was okay, but I would get tired of a box of it soon enough.

Of the big brands, I'd pick some Total-ish brand that looked not too deadly, or maybe Wheat Chex; more likely one the grains/nuts/fruit "healthy" blends. I eat cereal only rarely so it has little impact on my diet or health.

I ate cereal daily as a child, in a time when mothers didn't hover over the cereal aisle making elaborate decisions about: gluten? vegan? nutritional analysis? eco-impact? sugar content? politics of the company that produced it? Traveling to Ireland with my parents at age 7 my parents were American obsessed with finding my favorite cereal of the moment, Kix; in any town we would have to stop in at the grocery shop to ask for Kix, which of course no one had, except one shop which had one box only and then another a week or so later. I didn't put me off cereal then, but the big ordeal made about finding my favorite and all the grumbling about "Why don't they carry the complete range of General Mills cereals in every little Irish shop of a village of 210 people?" would in time make me a more patient and accepting traveller.

This is Product 19, not Product 1. You would think that after 18 tries, Kellogg's could come up with a cereal that would last forever.

by Anonymousreply 46Last Friday at 2:17 AM

Product 19 was unique and popular when it came out since it was one of the few multigrain cereals that was higher in fiber was nutritional and it tasted good. Today there are many multigrain cereals available that fit that bill.

My grandma was always watching her weight. We'd drink Alba shakes and eat Grapenuts, then snack on Ayds candy from her purse. Then I grew old enough to read the cereal box, and learned Grapenuts had enough calories to sustain a small village. What were you thinking, Gammy?

As a kid I would sometimes put orange juice on cheerio's instead of milk, and also occasionally dunk toast in OJ instead of tea - it tastes pretty much just like OJ but crunchy - never used apple juice. The normal way to eat Cheerio's in my house was to apply a very liberal amount of Hershey's syrup to a dry bowlful and then add milk - much better chocolatey tasting cereal than Cocoa Puffs, and no doubt even worse for you. I did this in the college cafeteria from time to time and by the reactions I realized nobody but my wacky mother had ever thought of this before.

I eat disgusting things like lasagne alla bolognese, roast chicken with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable, salmon at least once a week, other pasta dishes, often with Marcella's tomato, butter, and onion sauce, or else bolognese or marinara, over which I grate Parmigiano-Reggiano. I usually drink San Pellegrino or iced tea, coffee in the morning.

I hardly ever eat dry cereal. I don't know why you've seized on this tiny little preference. Are you YMF? (Remember her Talenti diatribe?)

R64 - my mom came up with Hershey’s syrup on Cheerios when she was a kid in the 40s. Growing up I thought it was a common thing - didn’t find out it was weird until I did it in the college dining hall. I asked her about it, and she said she made it up. She agrees that chocolate makes everything better - when she woke up after cancer surgery her first worlds were “Get me coffee and a Mounds bar.”
